no pity....

and he took harddrive back to manufacturer to try n help retrieve info..
was unsuccessful-- harddrive was disposed of.

judge instructed jury to assume music was still on computer since the hard drive was disposed
and rule in an "all or nothing" settlement.

so it wasn't a mere...dont write a check your  ass can't cash type  of case...its more to the story.

and he purposely said the laptop and not the music ... if it's unreleased music you wanted people to go search down your laptop and get their hands on it before it's copyrighted?

no, he always meant the laptop, imo


yet when he made the video about finding it...it was his music that he was wimpering about being the reason he wanted the laptop back.

its obvious why a producer would want back the laptop that had his creative property on it.
i doubt he wanted it back...b/c that was his favorite laptop screen size/ keyboard combinationLOL

and like someone said earlier-- i think its very possible that man had something to do w/ the the laptop being stolen in the first place.

I think RL's issue is the way he handled things when the laptop was returned. Since the issue was the music files (or lack thereof), he should have documented the missing items ASAP as grounds for not providing the reward. I read the article on Thurs, and it sounds like RL never made an official statement with witnesses etc saying "yes I received the laptop, but it's missing these specific files", then he'd have more grounds. But sending it to a third party for recovery and then letting them dispose of the files leaves him looking suspect even if he was within his rights.

of course he should have backed it up....but thats besides the point. whats done can't be undone.

when he made his video...he was asking back for the property that was on the laptop.
not the actual laptop which could have been purchased 10000x over with the reward money.

so if someone returned a laptop w/ nothing on it...
i'd be like wtf aslo.


thats like me offering a reward for my lost dog..
and u bringing bones to me back...like here! where is my money?


This. Dude ain't gaf about that laptop. He has more than enough money to get another one. Ole boy prolly holding on to his music files and trying to get a check on top of it. I feel bad for him Cry

of course he could have handled it differently.

but that doesn't negate the fact-- that this article was written in a way to suggest that he was being a cheapie cheapie and didn't want to pay merely because he got his laptop back and was trying to cheat the person who "found" it.

and as  for the third party thing....he  sent it to the manufacturer of the harddrive...hardly "rico's computer n things fix it" on 125th...so thats something to be considered.

i do think-- had the race of the parties in this case been different-- the judgement could have possibly ended different given the same exact facts.

I think it's telling that the jury didn't want to award $1M...they did think RL owed the man something but not $1M. So...in a way, RL burned himself with such a high figure that he threw out there.
